La superstar NBA des Phoenix Suns, Chris Paul, a instauré une règle assez dingue dans l'hôtel de son équipe durant ces playoffs

The 5 league stars who have NEVER been substitutes!

For a variety of reasons, including a low profile start to a career or a return from injury, the overwhelming majority of NBA players routinely come off the bench multiple times in their career. However, 5 stars have never endorsed this substitute status in the league, including the eternal Chris Paul. We take stock in numbers.

Being a substitute happens to everyone, doesn’t it? Same LeBron James it was once, that is to say! Well no. For the 5 players below, who have compiled thousands of NBA games between them, there has never been a need to drop the tracksuit at the scorer’s table. Here are the lucky winners, holders of a prestigious but precarious streak:

5. Karl-Anthony Towns: 493 games

Of the 5 names mentioned, that of Chris Paul necessarily deserves respect. Present in the league for almost 2 decades, CP3 has certainly fought against many injuries, but has always maintained such a standard that he has never had to come off the bench. Hats off.
